I had such fun making this card. I love the colours - so rich and elegant, perfect for my mother-in-law. I cut a mat layer in raspberry onto which I layered this lovely grey/silver paper - isn't the flourish just wonderful? I had to trim the grey paper to fit the card, and used the scrap on the envelope. I stamped the dahlia onto white card and cut it out, layering onto a teal scalloped circle. I stamped the sentiment onto white card and cut it out with my Die-namics fishtail dies. I finished the front of the card with a punched border in white and an accent flower, layered with all the colours.
For the inside I cut another mat in raspberry and on the white panel I stamped another dahlia (using second impression for a more subtle look) as well as the flourish from the same set. I think the sentiment is just right for Madeline's card - she's always in our thoughts, but more so on her birthday.
To complete the look, I also decorated the envelope using the left over strip of grey/silver paper - I couldn't waste it - far too nice. I punched the arch border in the grey paper and laid it over a strip of raspberry card. They look great together.
I got lots done yesterday - washing and ironing - making sure that Kathryn and I both have clean clothes for our trip. I laid out the suitcases in the spare room too - and am starting to pack! I have to be careful to make sure I don't go over the baggage weight limit!
That's all for now - I hope to have a card to share with you tomorrow. Bye for now.
